The two-alarm fire broke out just after 6 p.m. at the
business at 2704 North T St., said acting Escambia County Fire battalion chief Lt. Adam Harrison.
Nearly a dozen emergency units arrived on scene to
tame the blaze, which tore through a majority of the property, Harrison said. No one was inside the business at the time, and there were no injuries, he said.
Firefighters contained the blaze by about 7 p.m.
Harrison said damage is estimated at about $125,000.
“I would say about 80 percent of the structure is a
loss,” Harrison said.
The cause of the fire remains unclear and under
investigation, said state fire marshal’s spokeswoman Deborah Jamison.
